Tour details

A perfect wedding in the heart of Ottawa.

Your guests arrive at the quayside where there is ample free parking, and make their way on-board. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres are being served on the Upper Deck while a trio plays light classical music.

Once all your guests are on-board, the boat leaves the quay and floats gently along the Ottawa River. While your guests are enjoying a three-course meal, they look out at the view as they sail past famous Canadian landmarks including the Houses of Parliament, the Rideau Falls and the Canadian Museum of History.

The boat arrives back at the quay just as dinner is over, to pick up more guests for the evening party. The lower deck of the boat is transformed into a floating night club with a large dance floor, DJ and state-of-the-art lighting system. You and your guests party for the rest of the evening as the boat sails past many famous buildings now beautifully illuminated against the night sky.

Does this sound like your ideal Ottawa wedding venue? If so, tell us about your wedding plans and one of our Event Coordinators will get back to you as soon as possible. You’ll want to visit us to see our boats to discuss table layouts, seating arrangements, menu selections and your preferred route for your cruise. We look forward to meeting you.
